  • Notes 
    • On 3 September 1939 the regiment mobilized for war as the 1st Battalion Essex Scottish Regiment under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Arthur S. Pearson. It was the first infantry unit in the Western Ontario Militia District to be included in the Canadian Active Service Force, and had recruited 22 officers and 445 other ranks from Essex, Kent, and Lambton counties by 10 September, the date Canada officially declared war. Before the month was over, the regiment had recruited to its full strength of 812 men (a sizeable portion of which were American) and 27 officers.
